wafaa Abdelghani from broklyn new york says:
Masjid al nour islam 21 church av brooklyn new york 11218 has bud bugs, almost 150 boys and girls got infested with that. 4 teachers quit . The president jawhar ahmed of the masjid didn't care because he just got the money from kids and the community for his personnel issues- he has 4 wifes and 16 kids . this place too small for 150 kids - ages 3 to 16- he uses basement no windows for kids to breathe. He said no body can stopped him for doing that.
